“don t waste your time and money and health. bad food...expensive..bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

we went there a party of 8 people. the next day 4 of us had diarrhea. we ordered quesadillas and the chicken was hard to chew. i had quesadillas 10s of times in my life maybe 40 or 50 times that was the very first and so far the last time where the chicken is hard to chew. All the ones who consumed sour cream that night got diarrhea the next day. Concerning the service we asked for guacamole which in many places in lebanon comes standard with quesadillas at no extra cost. we ask for guacamole they said sure...nothing came...we reminded them they said again sure...but nothing came...third time we reminded them they say this is extra but dont worry we will bring.....Godot arrived and the Guacamole never came !!!! the price was not at all cheap especially if compared to the quality of food and service. i will never recommend this restaurant to anyone

Located right next to the old port of Byblos, this is a very cozy restaurant. Nice atmosphere, good food, and decent service. Highly recommended!
